Scuba divers have found paradise on the west side of the Big Island which offers some of the best in Hawaii.
Experience first-rate scuba diving with two morning dives at two different locations in Kona’s pristine waters. Discover tropical fish, green sea turtles, octopus, old lava flow formations, dolphins, whales, and more. You’ll enjoy the spacious 46’ boat that is restricted to only 18 guests, with 6:1 diver to dive guide ratio, and the full service of the friendly staff who change over your gear to a fresh tank and break down all your gear so you can relax on the ride back. Professional guides give you a thorough briefing of the dive site, educate you on what marine life you can expect to see, and provide a guided tour of the area. Fresh fruit, snacks, and water are served. Full set of rental diving gear is $59/person (or a la carte).
For certified divers who haven’t dove in over 2 years (but under 5), you are required to book as a Check Out Diver, in which a professional guide will give you more personal attention and help you practice any skills you wish to brush up on. Divers ages 12-17 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian diver or private guide ($150). Anyone with a certification that has a depth restriction of 40 feet (13 meters) must also select private guide at checkout.
COVID-19 UPDATE: To ensure the safety of all guests and staff, multiple measures have been implemented. For details, see FAQ below.
